    I'll have to find a 4GB to test this.
    If you can't locate a 4GB card, in one of the large cards just create a 4GiB partition and leave the rest unallocated if you find that the device continues to lock up using them. The file size limit is actually 4GiB not 4GB. Read this too for clarification about GB [gigabyte] and GiB [gibibyte] use: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    Well despite garmin's info, the 16 GB is detected and the map size is shown into the card info screen. The problem is that the GPS locks about 10 seconds after the map is detected. I have checked the number of tiles this map has and it is way within the limits my GPS can handle . Maybe there is just too much data for the GPS processor. After all, this is not the most recent GPS. I have used Gmaptool to split the map and it works well. I guess I will need to import it to Mapsource just to see the name of the tiles I do need and go back to Gmaptool to extract them. It's a long process but Routing and searches are working perfectly.

    Whoa! I always knew about the 1024 vs 1000 Bytes but it was the first time I was seeing the term GiB. I found your explanation very well done and easy to follow. What surprised me though was that the difference was getting much severe for a 1TB vs 1KB (90.95% vs 97.66%). I thought it was a linear error. It looks more exponential to me.

    Thanks for the explanation. Drive capacity becomes very misleading on large capacity drives.

    Hi everyone
    Any news about a new SHIFTED (Venus version) map of China in English?
    I live in China and I'm using this very one available on my Nuvi1250, map version "2015.10 China ENG Unlocked Shifted (Venus)"
    Can anyone help?
